I am going to purchase the Michelin the next time I need one, from a dealer and let them install it and have the headaches.

Follow the directions in the following article, section k through p:

I too have had fun and games with the Michelin Pilot Activ. If you follow my advice in k through p, it should go on fairly easily.
BTW...using anything over around 60 or 70 psi is VERY VERY dangerous. The tire can explode;........but the RIM CAN TOO.
Having aluminum shrapnel flying around is not a great idea. THINK about what that 100PSI really meant.
